The Neuroscience Research Partnership is funded by the Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore's lead government agency dedicated to fostering world-class scientific research. In partnership with the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, the NRP research activities span molecular and cellular neurobiology, developmental neuroscience, neurodegeneration and other neurological disorders, and cognitive neuroscience. The NRP provides access to state-of-the-art scientific facilities and infrastructure, and offers a vibrant and innovative environment to foster world-class research.
The multidisciplinary Laboratory of Multimodal Neuroimaging in Neuropsychiatric Disorders is led by Principle Investigator, Dr. Helen Juan Zhou, located at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, Neuroscience and Behavioral Disorders Program, Singapore. It is supported by the Neuroscience Research Partnership between Duke-NUS and A&STAR, Singapore. Using multimodal neuroimaging techniques (fMRI/DTI/EEG), our lab focuses on: (1) developing computational intelligence methods to integrate longitudinal multimodal neuroimaging data; and (2) applying these methods to study healthy human brain organization underlying social-emotion/cognitive/memory functions and vulnerability patterns in neuropsychiatric disorders. Our ultimate goal is to investigate the interactions among network dynamics, behaviors, diseases, and genotypes in order to explore non-invasive biomarkers for behavior prediction, differential diagnosis, and treatment design.
Candidates must have a passionate enthusiasm for research, a strong background in one of the following fields: cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychiatric disorders, neuropsychology, neuroimaging analyses, mathematics/statistics/machine learning or related-fields. He or she should be self-motivated, enjoy working as a team and constantly seek new challenges. He/ She should also possess the ability to take the initiative, work independently and be motivated to work in a highly collaborative and international research environment, and be able to demonstrate creativity, technical independence and excellent communication skills.
1. PhD in one of the following fields: cognitive neuroscience, neuropsychology, neuroimaging analyses, mathematics/statistics/machine learning or related-fields
2. Strong interest in studying social-emotion/cognition/memory functions and/or analyzing multimodal neuroimaging data, for neuropsychiatric disorders
3. Proven skills in fMRI/EEG/DTI data analyses is a plus but not necessary
Key attractions are access to a 3T Tim Trio MR scanner and a MR compatible digital EEG system as well as collaboration opportunities with an excellent network of domestic and international scientists and doctors. Competitive package will be provided based on experience.
